What are Nationally Reportable Incidents?

Some PSI’s are considered to be “nationally reportable incidents”, which is usually based on the level of harm caused by the incident.  These incidents are reported to the NHS Wales Delivery Unit, who oversee the functions for learning from national incidents.

To reduce administration, nosocomial COVID-19 PSI’s are not nationally reported, and are instead managed separately through the national programme where learning is captured and coordinated.

More detail on Nationally Reportable Incidents can be found in the National Patient Safety Incident Reporting Policy found here - https://du.nhs.wales/patient-safety-wales/patient-safety-incidents/
